How to remove ' - Mozilla Firefox' from title bar? In fact this is not (!) in the website's title! And this is what the title bar is for, isn't it? And don't say branding, I know which browser I'm using - even without this bloat. It is superfluous, unnecessary and redundant, so remove it or let us remove it. Thank You.

-- Firefox 73.0.1 (64-Bit) = latest MacOS 10.15.3 (Catalina) = latest Btw: automatically add troubleshooting information is 404.

There is not currently a way to remove that from the window title. It's the standard to have "Title - Program" in your program's title.

You can toggle the Title bar via the checkbox at the bottom of the customize window.

Hello Robert,

Would you please take a look at this thread and scroll down to :

"For Firefox Quantum (version 57+): "

https://superuser.com/questions/1092778/remove-mozilla-firefox-from-title

Here's the add-on that's mentioned there :

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/crappy-firetitle/

I'm not sure if this will do what you want, but it's worth a try .....

Thank You, bute Crappy Firetitle can not remove the ' - Mozilla Firefox', you can adapt everything before. Your mentions post says: Crappy Firetitle is the newer add-on for Firefox Quantum, but does not work like the legacy add-on. So far, none of recent add-ons could remove the program name "Mozilla Firefox" in title bar, due to limitation of WebExtensions API.

I want/ need the title bar. Only the wrong content (' - Mozilla Firefox') disturbes.

I can't believe I missed that - especially where even the developer of the extension mentions under "About this extension":

"m: Browser's name (useless since it is already forcefully displayed)"

My apologies !

Other browser don't. Safari does not, Chrome does not. So it is only Firefox. I extra installed Edge (OMG), even Edge does not.

You're welcome. I've testet all patterns with and without n, t, T - it only affects the part before the ' - Mozialle Firefox'.

Maybe someone will know a way to remove that piece of text by
adding code to the userChrome.css file (fingers crossed ... ).
